October 2013

David Molyneux, CNTD Professorial Fellow has been awarded the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene’s Manson Medal which is awarded as the highest mark of distinction to the living person whose contribution to any branch of tropical medicine or hygiene is considered by Council to merit the honour most.

The Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases (CNTD) was established in 2000 and has an outstanding record of achievement in the areas of implementation, research and capacity strengthening in neglected tropical diseases. Additionally, CNTD has a key partnership role as the Secretariat of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis.

CNTD's mission is to support national NTD programmes, provide technical assistance to a global initiative, strengthen the evidence base to inform policy makers, and identify and prioritise interventions that will eliminate filariasis and reduce the burden of other neglected tropical diseases.  CNTD's vision is to eliminate lymphatic filariasis and reduce suffering from other NTDs in economically poor populations in Africa, Americas, Asia and the Pacific Island nations.

The Centre is a constituent of a larger depth of NTD expertise based in the School of Tropical Medicine which leads in NTD research and global disease elimination/control programme management.  By using a multidisciplinary approach to research and its translation into policy and practice it capitalises upon political and financial commitments made at the 2012 London Declaration.
